Ask The Moon Works for Ladies' Classic

Myron Miller’s Ask the Moon, who has been stabled at Keeneland since a few days after she ran sixth in the Lady’s Secret (G1) on October 1 at Santa Anita, worked Wednesday morning in preparation for her next start in the Breeders’ Cup Ladies’ Classic (G1) on November 4 at Churchill Downs. Trained by Marty Wolfson, the 6-year-old Malibu Moon mare jogged a mile before breezing four furlongs in :48.

 

“She was bucking and playing and really feeling good,” said Heather Irion, Wolfson’s Keeneland assistant who rode Ask the Moon. “She did really well.”

 

Ask the Moon was claimed for $75,000 in June at Belmont Park and later won the Grade 1 Ruffian Invitational and Personal Ensign Invitational at Saratoga.

 

Irion, a former jockey and trainer originally from Collinsville, Illinois, has been overseeing five horses at Keeneland for Wolfson, marking the first time the South Florida trainer has had a string here. The stable includes Speak Easy Gal, nominated to Sunday’s Rood & Riddle Dowager, and recent acquisition Ann of the Dance.

 

Farnsworth Farms (now owned by Myron and Robert Miller) purchased Ann of the Dance, a 2-year-old daughter of English Channel, after she finished ninth in Keeneland’s Darley Alcibiades (G1) on October 7. Ann of the Dance is being pointed at the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf (G2) on November 4.

 

“She’s doing extremely well,” Irion said. “She is just doing everything perfect. Marty is very excited to get her onto the turf because (she is by turf champion) English Channel and her mother (Dans La Ville [CHI]) is a Grade 2 winner on turf. That’s exactly why he bought her. He feels she’s going to improve a lot on the turf.”

 

Ann of the Dance is scheduled to work over the Polytrack on Thursday at roughly 7:30 or 8 a.m. Irion said the two Breeders’ Cup hopefuls would relocate to Churchill after the weekend.
